Le Sacre du Printemps / HOMO NOVUS

Le Sacre du Printemps / HOMO NOVUS

An intense and very personal interpretation by Dewey Dell of Igor Stravinsky's classic ballet. Contemporary visions and archaic atmospheres, extravagant costumes, the 20th century archetypes and the complex relationship between the universal human condition and the constantly changing present.

Description

Show description
In every metamorphosis and profound change of a human life, death is always by the side of life, appearing as a rite of passage or as an inward revolution. In the animal and plant kingdom the coexistence of life and death becomes even more literal: death is often part of the fecundation process and life swarms on decomposed carcasses. Especially among insects, seeds, and molds, death is a welcoming presence; death is an invitation to life. The cyclic regeneration of the seasons and of the fertility of the soil are not a linear journey, but a chaotic disruption of all the elements together. Spring is a time of great agitation and the terror of existing is forever blended with the sidereal joy of being.

ABOUT ARTISTS
Dewey Dell is an Italian dance and performing arts group active since 2006 and now composed by Teodora Castellucci, Agata Castellucci, Vito Matera, and the musician Demetrio Castellucci.The choreographic research - continuously inspired and nourished by the images of art history and the behaviors of the animal kingdom - brings forward its own path of bold confrontation with archetypes and narrative frames drawn from the ancient world, with the intention of turning the model into a cast for pouring out a current and new essence. Dewey Dell has created dance works that intersect different art forms, pursuing other lines of experimentation in music performance, video and visual art.
Over the years Dewey Dell has collaborated with different artists such as visual artist Yuichi Yokoyama, theater director Kuro Tanino, graphic designer Clio Casadei, musician Massimo Pupillo (Zu), vocalist Attila Chsihar (Mayhem), sculptor Matteo Lucca and audiovisual installation collective Transforma among others. Since 2006 Dewey Dell has created many works, in particular the show “Sleep Technique – A Response to the Chauvet Pont d’Arc Cave” (2017) has been nominated at the prestigious German prize Der Faust Theaterpreis for the choreography and “Le Sacre du Printemps” (2023) won the Danza&Danza award as the best Italian dance production in 2023.
